Warm and Fuzzy
Season 1 Episode 10 of Window on Mainstreet is an old fashioned tale of youth, understanding, and forgiveness. A small morality play that leaves everyone smiling, problems worked out, lessons learned. I do believe the world held these values in much higher esteem than they do now. Robert Young is the perfect warm fuzzy guy to do this, too.
